america that the political landscape is about to shift? let me give you my thinking on this. what i think we see happening is a change of who we are. see, america is not a country that is based on an ethnic heritage. america is an ideal. you can go and be born in louisiana and move to italy -- i have lived there 50 years and you will never be italian. when my grandfather came to america from italy, he became an american.

. if we jump cheap corn into latin america -- dump cheap corn into latin america, what happens to the corn farmer in latin america? i think we need to ask that question. it needs to be part of the conversation. because i can't imagine most people who are undocumented really wanting to have to leave their home, their families, their friends to come to a country that they don't know or they don't necessarily speak the language, where they don't necessarily really know anyone, to try to make a life. they probably would rather stay home. but there's something that is drawing them here and it probably has something to do with our, you know, the great economy of the united states, but it probably also has something to do with the trade and agriculture policy which put a lot of pressure on economies in this hemisphere. so, with that, madam speaker, i'm just going to say, i'm going to yield back for the close to congressman polis, madam speaker, who has really been a champion on this issue, who has really kept the fire burning on it and i think, madam speaker, that we all owe him a debt of gratitu

to washington, march 2 washington and sign up for the army, navy, marines. america is not free. guest: i think you raise an important point about the e- verify program. arizona it is one of the few states require a individuals to participate in this. we are opposing this kind of program to push it nationally. in the end, there are a lot of programs out there that are conditioning robust worksite and foresman, which amnesty. what we are saying is, this is the wrong approach. to some extent, they are taking me the obama administration is painting themselves into a dangerous corner by saying we are going to take the interest of illegal aliens at a hard- working families who need enforcement. if they were serious about a pathway to citizenship, they would be talking about a far more comparable to a set of measures. they would be talking about curtailing future migration of extended family relatives. meaningful reforms that have been recommended by every commission in the last 30 years to start burning some credibility into the system. instead, because of the legislation they are talking about at t
as a friend, and america is very fortunate to have his talent as secretary of agriculture. i am honored to be here, to be speaking with you. the first speaker at this club was theodore roosevelt. i do want to point out that both peter roosevelt and franklin roosevelt or assistant secretaries -- both theodore roosevelt and franklin roosevelt or assistant -- were assistant secretaries of the navy. [laughter] there was a time when the navy only had three commissioned brigades, the united states, the consolation, and the constitution. we had a tiny navy, and one which had never fought. since the days of the revolution, the navy had been pretty quiet, although you could make a pretty good argument that the reason america changed the articles of confederation to the constitution that we have today it was because we could not build a national and navy to deal with the barbary pirates. that was one reason for the changes in philadelphia in 1789. in 1798, then secretary of the navy had three ships, a few marines to sail on those ships, and a decidedly limited navy. today, things have changed a l

, these practices supported a widely-praised initiative to increase homeownership in america. yet as we now know, homeownership reached unsustainable levels and became too much of a good thing. like all the players in the home mortgage market, bank managers at wamu and elsewhere mistakenly believed they were effectively averting risks by moving loans off their books and securitizing them. similarly, homeowners received little risk in their adjustable rate mortgages because they thought they could sell their homes at a profit before rate resets kicked in. investors believed mortgage-backed securities carried little risk because credit rating agencies rated them highly. those beliefs proved misplaced when the real estate market collapsed, the secondary market froze and the risks turned out to be all too real. the fallout hit financial institutions large and small with state and federal charters overseen by every banking industry regulator. since wamu's failure, the ots has taken lessons to heart from our own internal failed thrifts, and we have made strides to address the resulting recommendations
